It was Friday afternoon and the work week was over, but I still had a handful of errands to run before meeting friends for dinner – and I was beat. I needed a pick-me-up, not something filling that would spoil my appetite for dinner. So I decided to swing by my local drugstore to grab a Starbucks Refreshers™ beverage (I’m an Orange Melon girl) for a little boost.
Made with natural energy from Green Coffee Extract, Starbucks Refreshers™ beverage contain about a third of the caffeine from a freshly brewed cup of coffee and none of the roasted coffee flavor. I love having an energizing option that contains vitamins, ginseng and natural sweeteners. It also doesn’t hurt that with only 60 calories I’m not un-doing my time at the gym!
We know Starbucks Tribute Blend® is a special coffee, and so do you. In fact, we’ve never had so many people ask for one of our limited-edition coffees to come back. If you haven’t tried this beloved coffee or revisited it this year, now is the time.
***Update 3/30/12 - It's back for the weekend in U.S. stores. Buy a pound of Starbucks Tribute Blend or Starbucks VIA Tribute Blend this weekend (March 31 and April 1) and receive a free tall (12 oz.) handcrafted beverage. Enjoy!
One of my favorite beverages is the Caramel Macchiato, but for those who’ve never tried it, it’s a bit of a mystery. What does the word Macchiato mean, anyway? And how do you pronounce it? Macchiato, pronounced “mah-key-ah-toh,” literally means “marked” or “stained” in Italian. Traditionally, a Caffé Macchiato or Espresso Macchiato is a shot or two of espresso, with just a small amount of steamed milk that “marks” the espresso, though in some regions, the steamed milk comes first and the espresso makes the mark.
At Starbucks, we spend a lot of time focused on coffee quality, and with good reason – it is at the heart of our most popular beverages. But if our signature Espresso Roast is the heart, then great steamed milk is the body that holds our espresso beverages together.
Over the next month, Starbucks is rolling out a new custom steaming pitcher to help our expert baristas make even better steamed milk for your beverage. The secret is in the shape. It’s tapered and concave, allowing for the “whirlpool” motion needed for steaming perfection.
I always look forward to my morning coffee, whether I’m sluggishly heading out the door on a Monday morning or cozily settling in after a weekend stroll in my Seattle neighborhood. While I love to explore our different coffees, I tend to stick to a balanced cup, like Pike® Place Roast. My husband, on the other hand, loves the darkest of dark roasts – the bolder the better. And then there’s my dad, who, while he treasures his morning coffee, typically finds some of our coffees a little too dark for his tastes.
Stop by your Starbucks store tomorrow in recognition of World AIDS Day! For every handcrafted beverage sold at participating Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada in support of World AIDS Day, Starbucks will make a five cent contribution to The Global Fund. Since the launch of our partnership with (RED)™ in December 2008, Starbucks has contributed nearly $10 million to The Global Fund to help those living with HIV/AIDS in Africa.
Thank you for your support!

It’s time to “fall back in” to our usual routine. Summer vacations have come and gone, the kids are (finally) back in school and we’re settling back into our habitual schedules.
Fortunately, there’s something to spice things up a little: the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Tazo® Chai Tea Lattes mix the exotic with the familiar. This beverage starts with a rich, full-flavored Assam tea and blends five spices that have been used in Indian chai recipes for decades: ginger, cardamom, star anise, cloves and cinnamon. The blend is a “classic masala chai” – the Tazo recipe adds sweetness with honey, organic cane sugar and a hint of vanilla.
Like most of our beverages, the Tazo® Chai Tea Latte is customizable. If you want to savor some extra cinnamon or try it very vanilla, just ask. One of the more popular customizations you’ve told us about is to add a shot of espresso for an extra kick. There’s an iced version perfect for warm days. And there are a full range of milk options, including soy.
